Alasdair Duncan


about me

I am a London based psychoanalyst, of Lacanian orientation, working in private practice, and having had some years of analytically informed work in the field of autism support, for the National Autistic Society.

I'm an active member of the London Society of the New Lacanian School which is part of the New Lacanian School (NLS), one of the seven Schools of the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP). I work under supervision within this framework.

I have an MA in Psychoanalysis from Kingston University, a course affiliated with the Psychoanalysis department of University of Paris 8, the Institute of the Freudian Field, and the Popular University Jacques Lacan (UPJL). I've been a participant in the Nottingham-Dublin Lacanian Studies Programme (UFORCA), and subsequently the London Workshop of the Freudian Field.

I have been a contributing writer, and am a member of the editorial team, for the Psychoanalytical Notebooks, and contrutor via writing and translation to The Lacanian Review, as well as writing about art in a variety of places. I am the translator of Jacques-Alain Miller's book L'os d'un cure / Analysis Laid Bare, under Libretto Press. Some of my own writing can be found on my blog With Lacan

I have a background as an art practitioner, and a particular interest in the relation of psychoanalysis and art – fields which can have much in common.
